What a find! A vintage 1980s Avon "Merry Christmas Tree Hostess Set," which includes a ceramic Christmas tree, a base/serving dish, and coordinating rag doll and teddy bear salt & pepper shakers. The box explains that the tree has tiny holes with two functions: as a fragrance pomander (with the included pine-scented wax fragrance chips), and to hold appetizers on toothpicks. Truly an innovative piece of Christmas kitsch. I love the little hot dog wienies on the tree in the picture on the box.

The tree stands 8-3/4" high and the salt & pepper shakers measure approximately 2-1/4" high. The set is in excellent condition, and doesn't appear to have ever been used. There are no chips, cracks or signs of repair. It comes with the original sealed package of wax fragrance chips.
